A Proud History, A Bright Future

Over the past eight years, Burnaby Hospital Foundation’s gala has instantly
delivered audiences across the globe, immersing them in the sights, sounds
and aesthetics of exotic destinations, without ever having to leave Burnaby.
Now, coming out of a long and tiring year, we want to reach out and connect
with more people than ever before.

This year, in place of our traditional gala, we’re partnering with our friends at
Global BC to reach across all of British Columbia. Join us November 13th at
5pm on Global, right before the National News, as we fundraise to transform
Burnaby Hospital into a state-of-the-art medical facility for all of BC.

    A community hospital is an essential resource for everyone living in its surrounding neighbourhoods. Your hospital is important to the health and wellbeing of your family and its role is pivotal to the vibrancy of the community you share with your friends and neighbours.

    Burnaby Hospital is your local hospital, a place for reliable patient-centred health care. With dedicated medical professionals and the support of community partners, the hospital helps you and those you care about get well and stay well.

    As the fundraising organization for the hospital, Burnaby Hospital Foundation’s purpose is to ensure that Burnaby Hospital is equipped in every way to advance the health of all generations that will help maintain the vibrancy of the entire community. 

    When you choose to donate to Burnaby Hospital Foundation, we understand the reason lies close to your heart. It’s our job to connect you to what matters the most; we want you to have a meaningful giving experience. We uphold a genuine commitment to keep you aware of the impact your donation has on others, the difference it makes, and the power it has to change people’s lives.


    Burnaby Hospital Foundation needs your help to transform a beloved community hospital into a state-of-the-art facility that will meet the growing health care needs of Burnaby and surrounding neighbourhoods for generations to come.

    The two-phase redevelopment of Burnaby Hospital will significantly expand the services available for patients and families and boost the number of beds from 265 to 397, an increase of almost 50 per cent. When the redevelopment is complete, the hospital campus will also have two new patient care towers and a cancer treatment centre.

    Starting immediately, the Foundation is raising $30 million for Phase One, which focuses on four services that are critically important for all local families: emergency, surgery, maternity and mental health.
